Will Coppola spent the spring semester of his junior year in our nation's capitol working as a Page for the United States Senate. He was sponsored by Senator Murphy as one of the 27 Pages accepted into this very prestigious position. As described by Will, the position of a Page provide young people with a view into the life and work of our Congress. The job included, after 2 hours of school in the morning, assisting with small jobs like setting up podiums for speeches or chambers for sessions, counting votes, or working on 'subway duty' where they would count and check times of senators arriving via the underground subway to the capitol building.
Will was present for the 118th Official Senate Portrait and for the State of the Union. He described it as being an emotional moment and like being at "the Oscars of Politics" with all the cameras and flashes of the paparazzi.
As Will is beginning his senior year at LOLHS, he has his sights on universities in DC with close access to DC in order to continue working in this environment. He would like to possibly join the Foreign Service, following in his mother's footsteps. I am confident that wherever he is destined, he will be a true success!
